Default Re: Having hard time with bout. bow, advice on this?

I use elastic on my bows. It is so much easier to pull the ribbon if it slips and even it out. I wrap it with elastic thread about 5 times then tie it off a few times, then redo the wrap and tie. It hold very well. Just play around with it. When I was sewing mine, I about went bald from the frustration of getting the loops even. Cheat when ya have to, if it works, it works!!
